    After reading much about the films hosted by TFN, I noticed that many of the film makers are actually martial artists themselves.

    As a martial artist myself, I am interested in what styles people take. If you would be so kind as to post your style, that would be great. Thanks.

    In case you were interested, I take a very traditional Northern & Southern type of
    Kung-Fu.

    I have taken Kodudo for the last 5 years or so. It is the study of ancient Martial arts weapons.

    I've trained in Tae Kwon Do for 9 and a half years now. It's kind of flashy and looks pretty cool on film. Sage.

    I've been taking Choy Li Fut for the past few years now.
    It's a powerful southern Shaolin style of Kung Fu.

    I'm going to learn Wing Chun Kung Fu for my first film. It's what Jet Li used against himself in the end of that movie "The One". Looks great.

    Here at Haines Video Productions (upcoming "Luminara's Saber")we study Tae Kwon Do. I am going to be studying karate-do for the next six years or so, and hope to study some kung fu as well.

    Goh-lee, P-Nick! How do you DO that?!

    But anyway, there's this guy who cleans the floors at the grocery store I work at. He "says" he used to be a federal agent and that for part of his training he had to become a black belt in five different arts. Now, I'm not sure how much bull this is, but from talking with him, he seems to know his stuff. Ever heard of Shin-guru? It sounded familiar to me, but he said that he had to go to Japan to learn it, and that one of the students killed off all the masters and other students of the art. That leaves two Shin-guru practintioners left in the world: one, a murderious freak searching the world over for anyone left to... kill; and the other, an ex-federal agent who gets 75 bucks a night for cleaning floors at a grocery store.

    Okay, so maybe he's a few bricks short of a log cabin. Er... something. But I've been learning some things from him that have proven to be very useful. Such as when weilding a weapon of any kind, you'll never hit yourself if you follow the natural movements of your hand. I tried this out with both my wood nunchuks and my lightsabres, and it worked! Didn't hit myself. Course, I had been using those weapons for years now.

    Oh dear, I've lost my point....

    Wow!

    It's great to hear from so many different types of practitioners.
    Good luck to those just getting into martial arts.
    As Solo says, "You're gonna need it."

    Keep on practicing and lower that horse stance!

    Thanks!

    I have been teaching myself Jeet Kune Do for two years. I am highly interested in this martial way but unfortunatly I am too busy with school and this movie to commit to a school. I will most certainly get formal training once I go off to college, but for now I just read books and work on my punching and kicking bags.

    Your right elMister. I just saw my dvd case and it said Yulaw did Shin Yi. I remember now that Bruce Lee was the one that did Wing Chun Kung Fu. My mistake.

    Yes Bruce Lee studied Wing Chun in his youth before creating Jeet Kune Do.

    This is the story....i'm 20 years old and I want to learn Kobudo, a few people said that i'm "too" old to start learning that, and I think that is quite stupid, but it always leave me thinking....would those guys be right?

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah, at 20 you probably are to old.

    Maybe try learning how to knit sweaters instead, that's a lot more sensible for someone of your age.
